Last month VRFocus reported on Anshar Studios announcing that its PvP combat title Detached, would be coming to PlayStation VR in July. The videogame already supports PC-based virtual reality (VR) headsets, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, with cross-platform compatibility between them both. Today, the studio has revealed its gone one step further, not only ensuring PlayStation VR players can compete against their PC VR cousins but also non-VR players as well.
With VR still being fairly niche when it comes to the wider videogame market multiplayer titles can often struggle with getting enough players onboard. One of the ways developers are combating this is by making their title as cross-platform friendly and compatible as possible – the wider the headset support the more likely other players will be online.
Which is why Anshar Studios is making sure Detached will support gameplay no matter if you’re on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR, Windows Mixed Reality or even just a plain ol’ desktop.
Detached has two-multiplayer modes this will work on: Package Extraction – where players battle for cargo in the vacant void of space. They’ll need to use all possible means to attack their opponent and gain an advantage whilst avoiding attacks to get back to base. And Race; a pure adrenaline ride racing between pieces of broken shuttle and large asteroids.
Plus there’s a single-player campaign for those times where you want to be alone, having to survive against rapidly declining fuel and oxygen reserves.
All this multiplayer fun is due to take place in July. Originally Detached was due to launch for PlayStation VR on 5th July, but that’s now been moved back a day until the 6th. The Windows Mixed Reality and non-VR Steam version will also arrive the same day as PlayStation VR. Windows Mixed Reality and PlayStation VR owners will be able to get Detached for $24.99 USD / €24.99 EUR, while the Steam non‑VR version will be available for $14.99. Additionally, a free desktop demo version of Detached will soon be available. For any further updates on Detached, keep reading VRFocus.
